Sex and the City: Where the Girls Eat

Planning a visit to the Big Apple? Check out these bars where Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte sip their Cosmopolitans, bemoan their relationships and eye up the talent.

As Carrie said, "So what are we going to do? Sit around bars, sipping Cosmos and sleeping with strangers when we're 80?". Well, there are worse ways to live a life.
